With the introduction of remove_hugetlb_page(), there is no need for
update_and_free_page to hold the hugetlb lock.  Change all callers to
drop the lock before calling.

With additional code modifications, this will allow loops which decrease
the huge page pool to drop the hugetlb_lock with each page to reduce
long hold times.

The ugly unlock/lock cycle in free_pool_huge_page will be removed in
a subsequent patch which restructures free_pool_huge_page.
